Our team of 20 members from the Lauren family have finished the work week. Each team member put in an incredible effort to put in a beautiful driveway for our partners at Imagine Ministries.
The little feet that will run down the drive to their playground have forever captured their hearts. There have been bonds made between everyone that will last a lifetime. Nearly everyone has mentioned coming back again soon and, more importantly, want to look into supporting our partners and their ministry in other ways.
The team finished construction, painting, and yard work Wednesday, ending the day with a piñata celebrating the kids’ hard work in the last school year. Members from our Lauren family back home and here raised money to purchase backpacks for these amazing kids.
Thursday morning the team was blessed with a time of prayer led by our hosts. Without a doubt, lives were forever changed by what God did with this team and through it. After leaving the time of prayer, the team had an amazing afternoon full of kickball, playgrounds and ice cream with many of the children from Imagine.
After leaving the kids, the team shed many tears, but so many are eager to return to be with the newest members of the Lauren family. With a hard and emotional week of work, the team is ready to head home to share what God did during this week in Nicaragua.
